Fifty years for Southeastern Developmental Services

SDS Anniversary (2)

Staff and residents of SDS in Lamar hosted a simple, old-fashioned hot dog barbecue as a thank you to the area for the community’s support for the past half century.

Kim Engsburg, Executive Director, said during a bbq break, “We’re happy to host this for Lamar and surrounding areas for all the help they give to us, and all the donations we’ve received. This allows our clients to go out and enjoy activities.”

She said SDS is a little larger than most people realize, stating, “I believe SDS is the second largest employer in the county. Engsburg has been with SDS for about 15 years and the executive director for the past six years.  “I began at the very bottom doing direct care service and worked my up with the organization.”  She added she couldn’t do her job without the support of all the SDS staff.  She added the organization currently has job openings and people are invited to stop by the facility at 1111 South 4th Street in Lamar and apply.
